It’s National Work Zone Awareness Week and citizen safety advocate Sherry Munyon says the message for drivers is the same each year: slow down in work zones…

“And this year may be a little bit more intense, overall what we have seen is excessive speeding in work zones.”

Munyon is also urging motorists to put away the distractions. She says from 2015-2019 in Minnesota, 46 people died and more than 4,263 people were injured in work zone traffic crashes.
